    Jim Carrey: Unnatural Act

    ★★★★

    Viewed here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbpciGnQnOA

    A good stand-up set enhanced by Carrey's insane physical comedy. In this special - made during his "In Living Color" tenure but before his big jump to superstar status - it's easy to see the pure talent Jim possesses. He goes all in with his gesticulations, pratfalls, psych-outs and facial gymnastics. The special also has amusing on-location interludes and a goofy animated bit animated by "Ed, Edd n' Eddy" creator Danny Antonucci.

    Bagboy

    ★★★

    Viewed here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqRVIAfIhMQ

    A "lost" unaired pilot created, written, (poorly) directed, and starring Steve Brule (John C. Reilly), the weird host of "Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule". Here, Brule plays a bagboy at a local supermarket on high alert for suspicious shoplifters.

    As usual with Tim & Eric's comedy, there's plenty of their brand of humor here. It has intentionally misread dialogue, lingering camera shots, goofy faces, gross-out jokes, odd-looking people, some slapstick, and sheer awkwardness/absurdity. Die-hard fans will love it; I found it hit-and-miss, but got enough laughs to recommend it.

    Your laughter may vary.

  • The Land Before Time

    The Land Before Time

    ★★★★★

    Nostalgia in full effect!

    The tale of a group of young prehistoric creatures on a long, dangerous journey to a safe haven (The Great Valley) is just as engaging, touching and entertaining as it was when I saw it as a kid.

    Don Bluth and his team did an excellent job on the animation that still holds up to this day. The same goes for the late James Horner's great music score. I felt like a kid again; memories of…
